Played here a lot over the years

First time I can say I was really disappointed. Had a 12:20 tee time, checked in 12 and couldn't even get a cart until 12:30. No marshalls out here to keep pace so we got to the par 3 7th and had 3 groups backed up and waiting.

The priority is definitely the Sterling side. Could be a top public course in Houston, maybe Texas, if the effort and money were there.

Good Course

Interesting layout and fun to play. Greens were challenging and fairways were narrow and undulated. Too bad there was no marshal on patrol to speed up the pace!
Two guys were yelling when I was putting, which was annoying, but then, when I approached them for an explanation, they said “we were just messing with you guys. It’s not for slow play or anything “. Morons!

Not even rain could make this one a bad round

Good facilites and very convenient all you can hit range balls for 5 dollars. Rain made its way through the course but good drainage kept the round going. Other than hole 12 no other hole had standing water will all the rainfall we have receive during the last week. Greens were firm but receptive and the pace was a tad fast but playable. Great experience will come back is the discounted tee time.is available again.

À Nice golf for a good price

Very friendly staff and people around.
It looked like you are in a family.
We asked for a golf bag and they gave it to us free of charge and every one there was so friendly.
On the course we changed to the other private golf and again some people told us we were wrong and told us the Wright way and again very friendly.
After the golf we went for a lunch and again like we were member of the family.
The only negativfremark was about the condition of the ground that was to dry but that is probably due to the weather conditions in the region I believe!

Great layout, horrible condition

Greens are in good shape, the rest of the course is in horrible shape. Hard, dirt patches everywhere. What a waste of what I'm sure was a decent course.
